What is Methylsulfonylmethane?

MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is the oxidized form of dimethyl sulfide found in plants and animals or synthesized in a lab. After entering the atmosphere via plankton in the ocean, the predecessor to Methylsulfonylmethane interacts with sunlight in the ozone and then returns to land as MSM in the form of rainfall where it is absorbed by plants.
